Tesco Bank Programme



The Tesco Bank Football Challenge is a four-year community programme run in partnership with the Scottish FA. The programme uses the power of football to get Primary 2 and Primary 3 children (6-8 years old) active, not only at school but by establishing long-lasting activity week in, week out.

The aim is to engage 72,000 boys and girls of all levels and abilities in, at least, 1600 primary schools across Scotland in half a million coaching hours.

Through Big Hearts, Heart of Midlothian Football Club is working with twenty classes in the west of Edinburgh prior to the 2012 summer holidays. A further 20 classes will be able to access the programme from August onwards.

Our coaches visit each primary class for a six-week programme of coaching sessions with an emphasis on fun, movement and involvement. The programme is essentially an introduction to football and is designed to increase participation, enhance enjoyment and develop a range of physical and social skills.

After the initial six weeks the Challenge will continue at the schools through teachers and volunteers.

The programme is part of Tesco Bank’s commitment to making a positive contribution in local communities.
